A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Hide the truth. They use it.

For the most part I have always lived by "honestly is the best policy". Through the years I have developed a different perspective on that notion. In every relationship I have ever been in, in my adult life I have always been honest. In the end it was always used against me. Turned around, rubbed in, and never forgotten. So after awhile I learned it's best just to hide it.
